Jamie Jones will be back in the Leyton Orient goal for the home game against MK Dons.

Jones has been out for a month after a hernia operation but played for the reserves last week, and his return to fitness saw boss Russell Slade allow on-loan keeper Jason Brown to return to Blackburn on Monday.

Midfielder Adam Chambers also played for the second string after calf surgery and he will probably be on the bench.

Ben Chorley is available after a one-game ban but fellow centre-half Terrell Forbes is still suspended.

Slade is likely to restore Chorley in the middle with Elliot Omozusi reverting to right-back.

Winger Dean Cox could also be in line for a return after a virus.

MK Dons remain without striker Aaron Wilbraham.

Wilbraham was sent off during the defeat at Paul Ince's Notts County a fortnight ago and will serve a one-match suspension after last weekend's fixture was frozen off.

On-loan QPR striker Angelo Balanta will be out of action until March with an ankle injury and joint top scorer Sam Baldock remains sidelined. The striker has scored five league goals this season but is still out with an injured ankle sustained against Sheffield Wednesday.

Utility player Jude Stirling is nearing a return to action after a groin strain but will not make the squad. Defender Sean O'Hanlon may make the bench after some improvement in the condition of a stomach muscle injury.

Striker Jemal Johnson and midfielder Adam Chicksen had missed training through illness but look to have recovered in time.
